M-79 Ambush (c) 1977 RamTek.

A really great action game! This is a shooting game where tanks, jeeps and motorcycles battle it out in front of the two cannons under U.N. observation. Bang! When the enemy is hit, an explosion sequence occurs complete with the sounds of gunfire, whistles and whines - the action goes on and on!
